As part of our Refugee Scholars Program, which strives to help refugee high school students access higher education, we are looking for individuals/ groups who's interested in tutoring RSP Scholars (youth from refugee communities) at our community center sites, and/or specified high schools in basic subjects, as well as, practice basic English language skills through casual conversations. The students needing help will consist of elementary, middle, and high school students, if assisting with tutoring at the community centers. RSP will also offer special tutoring at the high schools, which will be primarily working with high school students at their high school.
